Shek O, Hong Kong

4.3
#2 of 19 in Beaches in Hong Kong
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below.

  • Go bus from MTR 筲 Kee Wan Chai Station, exit A3, take bus No 9 stone Macau (To Tei Wan)-Shel O Road to. Get off at the end. I would wear, most people headed to the beach to walk instead. In a small village several restaurants and trails are equipped with. Quiet, away from the city suggested it is.

  • Shek O is a place south of Hong Kong, there will be a long distance from the city, but every holiday will have a lot of visitors, both local and overseas, the Shek O environment is quiet, there is sand beach, there is a mountain place, can relax a day.
